Meditation: The Dichotomy of Control Training
Show Notes

The first chapter of Epictetus’ handbook deals with what’s called “The Dichotomy of Control.” 

In this meditation, I guide you through a mental training exercise that will help you practice integrating this Stoic principle. 

The benefits of this training cannot be understated. 

Although simple, Epictetus says that by using The Dichotomy of Control in your life, you can expect the following benefits:

  • You will feel liberated and free.
  • You will not have any hatred or resentment in your heart.
  • Every single thing you do will be chosen by you.
  • Nobody will have the power to hurt you.

Try as best you can to make this way of seeing the world an automatic habit.
